Any business, charity or public authority is eligible to claim the grant towards the cost of installing electric vehicle charge points providing they have dedicated off street parking for staff or fleet use only.
When and how will I know its value? The new system will pay up to 75% of the purchase and installation costs, up to a maximum of £350 per socket. When your installer redeems the voucher, the system checks the installation costs provided by your installer and generates the grant level that the installer will discount from your bill.
Is there a limit on the number of chargepoints I can claim for? Yes. The WCS grant is limited to the installation of 20 chargepoints sockets for each applicant.
No. The authorised charge-point installer will claim the value of the voucher (up to £350) for each socket, up to a maximum of 20 sockets on your behalf. The value of the voucher, generated at the end of the redemption process, should be discounted from your invoice.
No. 3-pin 13A socket (BS1363) installations or chargepoints with 3-pin sockets are not eligible for the grant. Only approved chargepoint units available on our website can be installed with the WCS grant.
Charge points can be purchased with a fixed lead this is called a tethered charge point, this lead is not removable, a charge point purchased without the tethered lead would mean you simply use the lead you was provided with when the vehicle was purchased.
